Volume 12 Chapter 25 – The Mystery of the Blood River Crystal
Night time, the wind was like blades blowing strong in the vast wilderness, and hiding in the wild grass was a faint silhouette.
The robes on his body were already torn into shreds, however below the shreds was a strong body with skin that was emitting white energy. “Inhale!” Luo Feng took a deep breath while sitting crossed legged. His chest sank in and the stomach expanded, almost as though there was a large balloon within his stomach. This balloon then shifted upwards and his stomach contracted and his chest expanded.
After which, the huge bulge separated into 4 portions, heading towards Luo Feng’s two arms and two legs.
Bulges appeared through his skin, it was incredibly peculiar!
“Exhale!” Luo Feng let out a long breath before opening his eyes.
“I’ve finally made it through.” Luo Feng was shocked within.
Under immense pain, Luo Feng could endure almost anything easily. However the absorption feeling earlier…it was something he really didn’t like! Because, besides the extreme pain, the most uncomfortable thing was that Luo Feng’s own soul and consciousness couldn’t control his own body!
Losing the ability to control his body, this was a feeling he had never felt before.
“No matter what, this type of feeling is finally over.” Luo Feng tore off the shredded clothes and carefully examined his body. No matter what angle he looked at, at least from the exterior, there didn’t seem to be any difference at all, compared to before the absorption of the crystal. During the absorption itself, his body constantly morphed into things he had never seen before.
“It shouldn’t be.” Luo Feng frowned.
“I’ll test it!”
Luo Feng gazed into the distance, “Spirit energy!”
Rumble…the distant wilderness’ big piece of land that was at least 10 million tons immediately floated up. Also, with the spirit energy wrapped about the entire piece, there was no leakage at all. Under Luo Feng’s control, this mountain of mud flew in mid air and in a round arc about.
“When it come to invasiveness, emptiness, flexibility, toughness, my spirit energy has no difference from before, my consciousness and willpower has no difference either.” Luo Feng shook his head. The piece of land revolving in the dead of night immediately fell from the air and smashed back into the crater from before.
“My soul wasn’t affected, how about the body?” Luo Feng frowned, suddenly throwing out a punch.
Rumble! With that punch, a high pressured shockwave was formed, causing an explosion in air. The terrifying ripple cut through the grass, completely clearing out a few km in area around him.
“No difference?” Luo Feng squinted his eyes. Ripples of energy vibrated all over his skin, all the strength in his muscles was immediately sent to his right hand which was formed into a fist! Luo Feng had transferred all his strength into that instantaneous explosion, resulting in that ear piercing explosion as he punched!
“I felt it, I felt it!”
“Within the depths of my cells, there’s a change!” Luo Feng’s eyes were filled with a sense of glee, “This, this is an evolution of life?”
Every time a flesh and blood life form breaks through, there would be an evolution.
Breaking through to star traveller, to star level, to universe level…the rest of the leveling was simply quantity based training.
“My body is still universe level 9! I haven’t broken through. However, my bones, muscles, and every cell within has had some change.” Luo Feng was excited and anxious within, because every evolution from each breakthrough from star traveller to sector lord level, none of the 5 breakthroughs were normal.
The books had said the evolution was mysterious, and this wasn’t exaggerated at all.
The changes deep within his cells, even with Luo Feng’s spirit energy, he couldn’t fully deduce them clearly.
“There’s no other way, I can only gradually get used to it. I will have to learn to feel it, and slowly understand its changes.” Luo Feng thought, following which he looked at the night sky. Sou! He rushed up and immediately broke through the cloud levels until the 12th level.
“I’ll investigate the mysteries of my body’s changes here in the clouds.
Luo Feng brandished a blood shadow blade and practiced in the clouds.
Swallow mound flying cloud pavilion, Luo Feng’s quarters.
Even though he had continuously killed 2 prominent figures in Swallow mound city, Lou Feng was still carefree and training in his quarters. As he was worried he might destroy the pavilion, hence he purposely used spirit energy to create a barrier around, and he trained within. Any ripples his fists caused were completely blocked by this barrier. He could train both his spirit energy and train recklessly within.
“Mysterious indeed.” He could already feel the initial changes of the blood river crystal’s mysteries. He was very excited.
Suddenly, he stopped and looked through the window outside. There were two people walking over, Nabu and Na Ke, father and son duo.
“I’ll take a break now.”
The gleeful Luo Feng walked to the 1st level. At the same time, Nabu and Na Ke had just walked into the yard, “Lord Feng.”
“Come in.” Luo Feng smiled and sat down. He lifted a wine glass and poured a glass of blood river world’s wine for himself and was sipping. A chill permeated through his entire body, he smiled comfortably, “Why have you rushed over here so early?”
“We heard that Lord Feng was taken into General Rock wind’s prison. This kid was so nervous that he jumped up and down after. So I accompanied him to visit you in the prison, only to find out that you had already left.” The silver haired Nabu smiled, “Hence, today we thought we’d come pay you a visit early. Lord Feng, if you have any troubles or matters in the future, please call us. Even though I may not be able to solve some big issues, however, when it comes to most trivial matters in Swallow mound city, I’m able to help you settle them.”
Luo Feng smiled, “However there’s nothing much now. Ah? Na Ke.”
“Hm.” Na Ke replied, his expression wasn’t too happy.
“What’s the matter?” Luo Feng smiled.
Nabu could see this mysterious warrior was in a good mood today, he smiled and explained, “This kid, he’s having some trouble in the relationship department, hence he’s sulking today.”
“Relationship troubles?” Luo Feng laughed loudly, “Na Ke, you’ve fallen out of love?”
“What’s falling out of love?” Na Ke looked up at Luo Feng.
“It means you like someone but she doesn’t like you back.” Luo Feng lifted the glass and sipped happily.
“Right.” Nabu smiled beside, rubbing his son’s head. His son however dodged unhappily. Nabu laughed, “The other party doesn’t like him. Actually speaking of which, Na Ke did give a new lease of life to that girl…just thinking about the matter makes me want to laugh.”
New lease of life?” Luo Feng was shocked.
“Father!” Na Ke was unhappy.
Nabu just smiled and explained, “My son has had a kind heart from young. He likes to bring his guards to bars and other places, to listen to stories of other strong warriors. He worships these heroes, hence he acts like these heroes sometimes. Almost like robbing the rich for the poor, he would give his family’s money secretly to the poor. One of the poor families only has a mother and a daughter. My son has been secretly helping them since she was young. After that, she grew up and got older. I don’t know how…but my son actually fell for that poor family’s daughter.”
“Ah?” Luo Feng starred.
Helping the poor, helping till he actually falls for the poor family’s girl.
Na Ke was blushing.
“Not just that! My son has always been secretly giving money to the mother of that girl. Funding the girl…” Nabu shook his head, “When that girl actually tried to enter one of the sects in our city, my son immediately gave a large amount of money secretly to that mother. And just like that…that poor family’s daughter, from a poor little girl, she became a genius warrior of that sect! Secretly, my son had been supporting her for 12 years!”
“What happened after that?” Luo Feng was curious.
“My son secretly liked that girl, hence he too joined that sect.” Nabu shook his head, “It’s a pity, just yesterday, he went to confess and was rejected.”
“Ah?” Luo Feng laughed happily.
Na Ke looked angrily at his father.
“Your father cannot speak a few words with Lord Feng?” Nabu stared at his son.
Na Ke could only look down, his ears all red.
“And not just that!” Nabu said, “If things still aren’t interesting enough, just as my son got rejected and walked towards the exit, his spirit dejected. That girl’s mother actually came to the sect to visit her daughter, seeing my son…this gets exciting, that mother actually hugged my son and expressed her gratitude.”
“Ah?” Luo Feng’s eyes gleamed.
“That girl ran over. Seeing the situation, she was extremely curious and asked her mother about this benefactor. Her mother told her the truth, saying how my son had been helping them all this while.” Nabu laughed loudly, “At this, the girl was stunned, and she couldn’t even believe it initially, saying Na Ke wasn’t even 20 years old, and it doesn’t make sense, because the support started over 10 years ago.”
“Her mother said, back then, a little rich kid under the protection of guards secretly gave them money, and she had watched as the little rich kid slowly grew up.” Nabu exclaimed, “Who would’ve thought a little kid’s playful attitude actually produced such a scene.”
“What happened after?” Luo Feng laughed and asked curiously, “How did that girl react to Na Ke?”
“That girl had backbone, she was very grateful.” Nabu said, “She told my son directly…I’m willing to repay my debt to you for my family as your slave, even if you wish, I’ll marry you.”
“Ah? That’s a pleasant surprise.” Luo Feng laughed.
“It’s not over.”
Nabu laughed loudly, “My son asked her modestly, do you like me?”
“That girl said, my mind is set on the martial arts, and there’s no one I fancy. However, the debt I owe to you, I have no other way to repay.” Naby said, “After the girl finished, my son said directly…I, Na Ke, will never force anyone. If you don’t like me, then I won’t force you. After which, this son of mine, he turned and brought his guards away with him. Haha…” As Nabu finished, he couldn’t help but laugh loudly once again.
“Interesting, interesting.” Luo Feng laughed too.
“Father!” The youth Na Ke was blushing red, angry and embarrassed.
“Not bad, Na Ke, not bad.” Luo Feng laughed and complimented.
Na Ke gripped his fists and said seriously, “I won’t force anyone. However, there will come a day that I will make her like me!” He said that as he looked up, filled with resolve.
“Good resolve!” Luo Feng couldn’t hold back his laughter anymore, and laughed with Nabu once again.
